PhD fellow in Structural Studies of Lytic Polysaccharide Monooxygenases

Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a PhD scholarship (3-years, full-time) in Structural Studies of Lytic Polysaccharide Monooxygenases to start in autumn 2019.

Description of the scientific environment
The Department of Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen is a combined research and educational institution training bachelors, master students and PhDs to the highest vocational standards within all fields of the molecular sciences. Research at the department spans all chemistry disciplines, inorganic, organic, physical, theoretical and biological chemistry.

The position will be in the section for Biological Chemistry in the group of Professor Leila Lo Leggio. The group specializes in structure and function of carbohydrate active enzymes, primarily using crystallography and complementary structural, biophysical and biochemical techniques. Recently a major area of focus has been the study of lytic polysaccharide monooxygenases (LPMO), which are copper metalloenzymes able to degrade recalcitrant polysaccharides.

Project description
The main aim of this project is to contribute to the structural and functional understanding of LPMOs as part of HOPE, a project between several Departments at the University of Copenhagen and DTU, which is partly funding the position. Determining the detailed structure of enzymes can help us understand the structural basis of their specificity, evolutionary relationships and mechanisms. Specifically, the project will involve structural characterization of new and model LPMOs and their interaction with substrates by crystallography and other diffraction and spectroscopic techniques, using both X-rays and neutrons. Use of large scale facilities (neutron and X-rays) outside of Denmark will be an integrated part of the PhD study, mostly through short visits of a few days, but possibly through a longer stay of 3-4 months to acquire new expertise to bring back to the home team.

Strongly desired qualifications

  • Fluency in English, good interpersonal and excellent communication skills including scientific presentations
  • Experience in protein crystallization, data collection and structure determination by crystallography
  • Experience with carbohydrate modifying enzymes, preferably lytic polysaccharide monooxygenases
  • As the position involves expanding the technical portfolio of the home team, a demonstrated attitude for learning and adapting new techniques in biophysical and/or analytical chemistry is an advantage
  • Applicants with documented experience in completing a scientific manuscript will be prioritized.
Principal supervisor is Associate Professor Leila Lo Leggio, Department of Chemistry, leila@chem.ku.dk.

Job description
The position is available for a 3-year period and your key tasks as a PhD student at SCIENCE are:

To manage and carry through your research project

  • Attend PhD courses
  • Write scientific articles and your PhD thesis
  • Disseminate your research
  • To stay at an external research institution for a few months, preferably abroad
  • Work for the department, usually in the form of undergraduate course teaching in first year BSc educations at the faculty of Science, which is usually in danish.
Formal requirements
Applicants should hold an MSc degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Nanoscience or a related discipline with good results and good English skills, or expect to obtain one by 10. September 2019. If the MSc degree is not yet obtained, a recommendation from the MSc thesis supervisor is necessary and marks will need to be sent by this date. As criteria for the assessment of your qualifications emphasis will also be laid on previous publications (if any) and relevant work experience.

Terms of employment
The position is covered by the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff.

Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State.

The starting salary is currently at a minimum DKK 325.625 including annual supplement (+ pension up to DKK 44.980). Negotiation for salary supplement is possible.

Application Procedure
The application, in English, must be submitted electronically by clicking APPLY NOW below.

Please include

  • Cover Letter, detailing your motivation and background for applying for the specific PhD project.
  • CV
  • Diploma and transcripts of records (BSc and MSc)
  • Other information for consideration, e.g. list of publications (if any),
  • Recommendation letter from thesis supervisor, compulsory if MSc thesis is not yet completed
The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.

The deadline for applications is 1 August 2019, 23:59 GMT +1. Applications received after the deadline for applications will not be considered.

After the expiry of the deadline for applications, the authorized recruitment manager selects applicants for assessment on the advice of the Interview Committee. Afterwards an assessment committee will be appointed to evaluate the selected applications. The applicants will be notified of the composition of the committee and the final selection of a successful candidate will be made by the Head of Department, based on the recommendations of the assessment committee and the interview committee.

The main criterion for selection will be the research potential of the applicant and the above mentioned skills. The successful candidate will then be requested to formally apply for enrolment as a PhD student at the PhD school of Science. You can read more about the recruitment process at http://employment.ku.dk/faculty/recruitment-process/.
